    I'm really happy with this projector. We have no problems with rainbow effects. The only thing I don't like is it takes a couple seconds to adjust the resolution or find the signal when you switch inputs or formats. I wish that was a little faster, but it's a minor annoyance and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I discovered it can translate the side by side 3-D videos on YouTube and elsewhere! I didn't know it could do that and I'm very impressed and that opened up a whole lot of other 3-D experiences besides just 3-D Blu-ray disks. The 3-D craze may be over for the moment, but not for me. I wish I could afford a 4K projector, but this will keep me amused for a while until I can. My previous Optoma projector lasted 10 years! This one is even better and has a stunning picture with much improved contrast and it's almost half the price of my first Optoma projector. Bravo Optoma! Thank you for finally helping me afford a 3-D setup. One more thing I was disappointed by was I could point the Optoma remote at the screen and it worked with my old projector but it doesn't with the new one. Since it's mounted on the ceiling behind me it's a pain in the butt to change the settings on the fly, but when I get time I will try and reprogram my Harmony Remote to make the changes I use most often. Mainly the 3-D settings and formats.

    NIce for the price. Warranty is a headache.

    From day one the projector didn't seem right. It takes time adjusting from one scene to another in color and contrast. The unit had loud fan noise. Eventually it stopped working when I heard gears grinding inside. It died inside the one year warranty so I paid $40 to ship it out to Optoma. I ended up having to call them when I didn't hear back from them after 2 weeks. (only one employee who performs this task) They then looked at it and got back to me. They said they had order a part and we waited about 10 days. Then they contacted me and said they replaced the part and it needed a new bulb for around $250. Being a year old and not having noticed bulb issues I declined the bulb replacement. I soon got the projector back and the bulb has been fine over the last few months. Overall I think the projector performs like a $500 projector and even looks really good. However as I look for a 4K projector now I am hesitant to consider Optoma again due to their service and warranty. Epson seems to have the best warranty in the business.

    Pros: Price point Picture Cons: Sound Great product. For the price I was willing to take the chance on this projector. I had a friend that has a different model same brand fell in love with his so researched found this gem and jumped on it. Before I purchased a screen I was impressed with the picture quality of the product. I have since purchased a screen and it has surpassed even that approval. I have thrown a backyard dive in movie night with it and all the guest were impressed at the picture and price point. But with everything great there has to be a negative. Not that it affects me in my use only because I use Bluetooth outdoor speakers for it but the sound is low and shallow. It fill a quiet room indoors but wouldn't be able to hear if outside having a pool party in which is how I use it. If your looking for a quality projector for under 1k price with an outstanding picture this is the projector for you. Don't let the sound quality keep you from purchasing this. Too many inexpensive ways to over come the sound cons. Purchase this you will not be upset.

    For 549$ don't even think about it. The picture is awesome. I bet it can compare to much more expensive models. Full 1080p and the 3d is awesome. It does not have lens shift so it needs to be centered to the screen. So it is best to mount on the ceiling both the projector and screen. I have the projector on a tripod and a tripod 100" 16/9 screen and it is a hastle to set up every time. I play Xbox one games on it and I see no problems. Picky people that see rainbow effects and I don't know what else don't look at cheap projectors. Great buy. Love it. Very bright. 4 lights.on no sweat. Best buy delivered to local store 1 day before I was told. Happy camper.

    PERFECT FOR OUR ROOM

    We recently purchased a home and knew that we wanted to put a theatre room in. We immediately started having professionals come out and look at our space and quote us for everything that we needed. Many of them wanted us to purchase a projector that was $2,000+. However, we went with this model instead and couldn't be happier. We use a grey material screen with it, and it's great. Colors show nice in a dark or lighted room, and it was very easy to set up. We purchased the Optoma projector mount to go with it -- ended up take out the height adjustor screws and using those instead of the actual screw holes for the projector mount. It allowed for a much more stable and center of gravity space. We haven't hooked up our speakers yet, but find that the speaker built into the projector isn't that bad for the interim. Overall, would completely recommend this projector!!

    I reviewed a host of projectors before I chose this one, over 3000 lumens, 3D and HD 1080p. The built in speaker is a plus, but I highly recommend external sound a small speaker in mono spoils the large screen experience. Only con is manual focus, but unless you move it no need to refocus. It lacks the inputs of other projectors at only 2 HDMI inputs, but again not a problem, I didn't want a bunch of wiring. I use one HDMI cable to my receiver and add all other devices there. At about 12' I was able to fill the whole wall with a high quality picture that was still very vivid with lamps on! I'm impressed, and I couldn't beat the price. Also recommend a low profile Mustang ceiling mount with this, it took alot of research to find a good mount at a fair price.

    I am totally in love with this projector already. Its my first projector and I have been blown away with the quality of the image. So far I have streamed, played blurays and watched couple of 3D blurays as well. It does get hot but it is very quiet. The performance is flawless. Enough ports for the average user. There are multiple viewing modes available. However, you can tweak the settings as you wish. If you are an average user, looking to setup your first 3D home theater then this is the perfect projector for you.

    I was a little skeptical before purchasing this projector but Best Buy offers 15 day return policy. So I decided to give it a try and put in my order. There were none available in store so that was a bummer. Took about a week to get it shipped to the store. Once I took it home and unpacked the contents I was pleased to find out how easy it was to set up. The boot up screen was a little misleading as it was kind of blurry and dim. I used a firestick as the video source and once the screen displayed the source I was very pleased. The projector is displayed on an off white wall and is still has a good clarity. I will eventually purchase screen paint for the area designated for projection but as of now I'm very satisfied!
